Pathology is at the heart of modern healthcare. Pathologists work to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor diseases and are involved in the diagnosis of disorders affecting every organ of the body, from before birth to after death. The majority of tests requested by doctors will be performed and interpreted by a clinical scientist or medically qualified pathologist. 

The Royal College of Pathologists is a professional membership organisation with over 11,000 members who are doctors and scientists working in hospitals, universities and laboratories in the UK and overseas. We work with pathologists at every stage of their career – from setting curricula, organising training and running exams, to approving job descriptions, publishing best-practice guidance and providing continuing professional development. 

We offer attractive staff benefits including 25 days annual leave rising with length of service, enhanced employer contributions to pension scheme, an employee discount scheme, and season ticket loans, as well as a cycle to work scheme.  The College values diversity, welcoming applications for all members of society.
